I was going through old memory cards getting things together for our upcoming vacation when I found this shot, part of the tail-end of last summer. Taken from the plane as it was coming into Lambert-St. Louis Airport, you can see beneath the bright sunlit clouds the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers joining together.
At the very end they flow in parallel, and the Mississippi makes an abrupt right angle turn to cut off the Missouri.

To make it a little easier to see (there was considerable flooding at that time), I've outlined the Mississippi in yellow and the Missouri in blue.
